In 2004 the Basic Skills Agency commissioned the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) to conduct an evaluation of the Strategic Intervention Grants (SIGs) programme in Wales.
A shortened version of the final report is available to download below.
The aims of the project were:
- to evaluate the effectiveness of the strategy and the framework established by the BSA
- to evaluate the effectiveness of the strategic intervention process established by the BSA
- to collect qualitative and quantitative evidence about SIGs’ impact
- to collect and summarise examples of good practice in the form of case studies
These examples of good practice are available to download below.
